Jaguars vs Titans: TV Channel, Streaming Info, Odds, Picks, Everything You Need to Know for AFC Week 5 Game
Two AFC South teams that suffered bad losses face off this week, as the Jacksonville Jaguars host the Tennessee Titans. The Jaguars are emerging from a difficult double-digit second-half collapse against the Cincinnati Bengals, and are also facing outside noises, with first-year head coach Urban Meyer having had a weekend himself. interesting.
Tuesday, Michael Silver of NFL Media reported that Urban Meyer’s situation in Jacksonville has reached a “crisis point.” One has to wonder how focused this team really is on football at this point. As for the Titans, they’re not exactly a team that can come in and dominate Trevor Lawrence and Co. They get assaulted and just lost to the previously winless New York Jets in overtime in what has been one of the biggest upheavals of the season.

Key matches to watch
Derrick Henry vs. Jaguar Defense
Ryan Tannehill was pitching for practice against the Jets last week and spent most of the afternoon dodging defensive linemen. Tennessee surrendered 33 times to Henry, and he didn’t drop the Titans with 157 yards and a touchdown. While the Jets’ victory over the Titans was shocking, it wouldn’t have been a close game if Henry had been out with injuries like AJ Brown and Julio Jones.
Henry is enjoying what is probably his best season so far. He is known to have finished the season warm – without starting on a tear. He leads the NFL with 510 rushing yards and four touchdowns. It looks like a 2,000-yard run in two consecutive seasons is on the table. The Jags need to limit Henry and they have failed to do so so far. Two of Henry’s best three regular season performances came against the Jaguars. In 2018, he rushed for 238 yards and four touchdowns against Jacksonville, then 215 yards and two touchdowns last season.
Trevor Lawrence vs. Secondary Titans
Lawrence failed to throw a touchdown in last week’s loss to the Bengals for the first time in his young career, but it was one of his most impressive performances. He showed group control, made some great throws into the field and also rushed for a career-high 36 yards and a touchdown. Lawrence outperformed fellow rookie Zach Wilson in four games, but the Titans gave Wilson his outstanding performance. Are we about to see Lawrence’s best game as a pro?
If you had to identify a weak spot on the Titans’ roster, it’s the cornerbacks. Janoris Jenkins, Breon Borders, Chris Jackson and Elijah Molden struggled, but sophomore corner Kristian Fulton was the only bright spot. Overall, as a unit, however, they have been bad, and the Jaguars have a few versatile wideners in Laviska Shenault Jr. and Marvin Jones Jr. If the Jaguars win on Sunday, it will be thanks to their successful attack by the pass. .
Jacksonville Jaguars +4.5
These are two franchises that are struggling right now for different reasons. I think the Titans are better, but the Jaguars and Lawrence get better every week. It could be a very close game, but I’m going to bet on either AJ Brown or Julio Jones play – which will help the offense greatly – and Henry leading this team to victory.
To take: Titans 27-20 vs. Jaguars
